UFO International Productions has announced the opening of a new stage facility in Sofia, Bulgaria.

The Bulgarian Film and Television Centre (BFTC) claims to be the largest studio in the Balkans, with nearly double the stage capacity of any other studio in Bulgaria.

Sofia is already home to Nu Boyana Studios. Nu Boyana is currently constructing a 2.5-kilometre New York street set and 10 new sound stages.

BFTC includes a back-lot with more 17 acres of standing sets, including a Western Town and a 15th century galleon. BFTC plans to open a 20,000-square-foot horizon pool this August.

UFO International Productions' chief Phillip Roth has been producing
feature films in Bulgaria for more than seven years.
